Alright, so my kid is awesome. Here's the thing...he may or may not actually be mine because, well, he kept trying to hide from the "camera" and, let's face it, I would never do such a thing. On the other hand, the way in which she dodged the "camera" was hysterical and while I told the ultrasound tech that I planned to discipline her for her bad behavior and general uncooperation, secretly I was laughing inside and thinking what a fantastic baby is actually growing inside me. The baby kept burying his head and once the ultrasound tech managed to sort of poke the head into position to take the "photograph" the baby would fling his hand up in front of his face.
Seriously, it's amazing and insane how much you can love this little alien looking person. And it's kind of easy to forget just how phenomenal it is that two people can create a life that becomes an entirely new and different and wonderful little being.
